Longtime Star Wars Producer Rick McCallum Leaves Lucasfilm

Now that George Lucas has passed off the Star Wars franchise to Disney and Kathleen Kennedy, Rick McCallum, who produced the three Star Wars prequels and the special edition re-releases of the originals, is parting ways with Lucasfilm. In a statement, he assured fans that the operation was being left in good hands: "There’s only person in the world who could do this, and that’s Kathleen Kennedy." McCallum plans include a slate of independent films, and Lucas has already expressed the desire to collaborate with him again in the future.
